Alexandros

Edward Kennedy Square, Lakka, Greece
Improve this listing
Ranked #4 of 17 Restaurants in Lakka
Certificate of Excellence 2014
Cuisines: Greek
Dining options: Late Night
Description: I am surprised this Taverna has not been reviewed before as it is long established, always full and really good value. It is located in a small side street just behind the harbour road, next to Lisa's Place and the Harbour Lights Bar. It is a traditional family run taverna which cooks either fresh for you, from the Souvlaki Grill or from a number of pre-cooked dishes which you can view in the kitchen. The prices are really good too. And because it is always busy it has a good atmosphere - Ok the views aren't as good as the harbour side, but you can eat well here for value and then go for a walk and drink at the harbour later.

Before we'd even eaten anything, the delicious aroma of grilled meats coming from Alexandros' kitchen stopped us in our tracks; we had a feeling we were onto a winner... and we were right. The most perfect lamb on the spit and chicken in lemon sauce that both melted in the mouth and were bursting with flavour, served with the best... More

Nice traditional taverna tucked into a back street taverna. We had Lamb Kleftiko and Chicken cooked with garlic & lemon. Lamb Kleftiko on Paxos never lived up to my high standards but this was very tender. Nice jug a house wine.

Honest and delicious Greek food in a very warm and friendly family atmosphere. Great value for money compared to many of it's neighbouring restaurants and well worth a visit. Go for it!

I've been coming to Alexandros for thirteen years and have eaten here dozens of times. It is family run, incredibly welcoming and is wonderful every time. This tucked away family-run restaurant serves up a huge choice of traditional Greek dishes and is hard to beat for value. A more welcoming restaurant is hard to find.

We went here and ordered 2 gyros, one tomato salad and one burger. The tomato salad was 2 EUR for 2 slices of tomato which were horrible at taste. When we said we won't pay for them, the manager told us that "he knew they weren't fresh". The gyros was lousy, it had stale vegetables in it as well. The... More

An excellent family restaurant set in the back street. Not easy to find but stand outside Christos boat rentals on the harbour front with your back to the shop turn left then walk down the alley. We ate here on several evenings because there was a warm welcome and real home-cooking. Particular favourites were the seafood dishes with special liking... More

Not the biggest of dishes. But what you get is very enjoyable. The service is good. 3 courses for 8Euro. Can't go wrong.

We loved this place. One of our favourites. We went there four times. Family run, staff very helpful and friendly. So pleased we found it as it is tucked away in a corner in the back streets. Food was wonderful every time.
